A homeowner who shot a suspected burglar who was later found dead of his injuries has been cleared of criminal charges.

Calcasieu Parish grand jurors declined to indict 57-year-old John R. Olivier on a charge of second-degree murder.

He was investigated in connection with the Dec. 12 death of 18-year-old Divonte LeDay.

The parish coroner says LeDay died of shotgun wounds.
